Re: engine tapping noise

I have a 85 380 SE that had a pronounced tapping noise coming from the right hand side at first I thought it was my lifters I put in engine oil supplements hoping the noise would go away I removed the valve cover ,I had 1 cam lobe worn right down I ended up replacing it along with new rockers and oiler tube the job wasn't as difficult as I thought .
I had exactly the same problem and the same camshaft wear but the engine also had to have a complete rebuild at the same time.
